Russian President Vladimir Putin has deployed TU-95 Bear Bomber aircraft to practice striking military targets with cruise missiles.

The Presidents of Armenia, Belarus, Kirgizstan and Tajikistan were in attendance.

According to Ria Novosti, "The bomber successfully fired six cruise missiles at ground targets simulating key military assets of a hypothetical adversary. The Russian Defense Ministry confirmed all targets were hit."

TU-95 MS Bear Strategic Bombers were accompanied by Mikoyan Mig-31 interceptors when flying over the waters of the North Sea.
